Verse 1
How do you like you Hip-hop music/
Some like it holy, some like it polluted/
Some like a crew like The Movement/
In tune with the blueprint of Heaven consumed with Life/
Hip-hop on a higher level, Hip-hop is not evil/
Hip-hop was not created by the Devil/
Itís just like every other music form/
Your soulís been searching for one since youíve been born/
Looking for something to express/
That rhythmic pattern bumpin in your chest/
And it just so happens that these cats rappin have tapped into a key of life/
And it strikes for so many people/
In so many regions rap is the way to reachíem/
Nothing is equal/
Itís as classic as classical/
And probably more spiritual/
Than most of the spirituals that you know/
Thatís not just Ďcause I do it/
(Nope) not just Ďcause itís my music/
(Nope) but that is how I use it/
So I just thought that you should know/
I love what it was and what itís become/
Musically but between you and me I hate what itís done/
How itís run and how the songs of every singer/
Sound like sound tracks to match shows of Jerry Springer/
We live to it, look at what we did to it/
Or what it did to us this is not just music/
Itís not kid music/
These are grown men/
On the microphone who like to condone their own sin/
For us itís holy ground/
Hip-hop is holy now/
Long as I got the microphone Iíma hold it down/
But when I pass the mic back its back to you know what/
But we donít recommend you listen I mean you know us

Hook:
It aint nothing like Hip-hop music/
it aint nothing like/
it aint nothing like/
it aint nothing like Hip-hop music/
itís not wrong or right itís how you use it fam

Verse 2
Donít let these radio programs through/
All they want to do is program you/
Hip-hop to the slow jams too/
Trying to turn young cats into macks/
While keeping our shorties on there backs/
Giving it up all in the name of living it up/
Living large off of charge cards with limited bucks/
In your pocket riding with sin like a sidekick/
That donít make sense/
Check the logic/
Todayís top topics are topless cars and chicks/
Thatís easy but rhymes are hard to kick/
Even if Iím not one of your favorite artists/
Iíll still set this joint a ablaze like a arsonist/
Hip-hop is our and itís a mirror of our hearts/
And this is harsh but listen our appearance is marred/
If you donít like what you see in the Hip-hop glass/
Know the future is a present from the Hip-hop past/
And if you donít like the gift itís giving/
Than donít rip the ribbon and tip your glass as if this is living/
Demand more, let them know you wonít stand for it/
We gonna have to change if thereís no fans for it/
This could be holy ground/
Hip-hop is holy now/
Long as I got the microphone Iíma hold it down/
But when I pass the mic back itís back to you know what/
But we donít recommend you listen I mean you know us

Verse 3
First you buy the CD then you buy into/
What they saying ainít you tired of them lying to you/
Itís like false advertisement/
They show you guys with whips and chicks but have you ever tried it/
You never find love in a one night stand/
Thatís like trying to use a flash light for sunlight tans/
But itís not enough light/
You probably cried nuff nights/
With the pain inside bottled up tight/
But we come to release the pressure and weight/
Of sin and pull you out like measuring tape/
You can move your body like a sneak if you wanna/
Then turn around be hollering rape in the corner/
Iím not hating on ya/
Iím showing love the kind of love to get you aint gotta go to the club/
And young brothers you aint gotta grow to be thugs rolling on dubbs/
What Iím saying is totally bugged/
I know this because unless I say Iím holding a snub/
Going to pop slugs at homie you donít even budge/
But it aint even gotta be like that/
I spit life on the mic Christ set me free like that/
But this is holy ground/
Hip-hop is holy now/
Long as I got the microphone Iíma hold it down/
But when I pass the mic back itís back to you know what/
But we donít recommend you listen I mean you know us
